CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
9:13 Let it, and c. - To kill their implacable enemies. For it is not improbable that the greatest and worst of them had hidden themselves for that day; after which, the commission granted to the Jews being expired, they confidently returned to their homes. Hanged - They were slain before; now let their bodies be hanged on their father's gallows, for their greater infamy, and the terror of all others who shall presume to abuse the king in like manner, or to persuade him to execute such cruelties upon his subjects.
The king's decree gave the Jews in every city authority to unite to defend their lives. They were allowed to kill, slaughter, and annihilate anyone of any nationality or province who might attack them or their children and wives, and to take the property of their enemies.
So the king agreed, and the decree was announced in Susa. And they impaled the bodies of Haman's ten sons.
Then the Jews at Susa gathered together on March 8 and killed 300 more men, and again they took no plunder.
